Jack's Story

Jack Topping
  •  First started singing at aged four at church; "I just love singing and I've always loved it. It's like showing your emotions and it's one of the things I most enjoy doing."
  • After becoming aware of his voice, Jack’s mother took him to Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral choir trials to get an expert opinion on his singing potential.

  • The cathedral music director invited him to join the choir immediately.

  • Renowned producers James Morgan and Juliette Pochin heard about Jack’s talents and travelled to Liverpool to listen to him sing. They were so impressed they invited Jack to London to make some demos.

  • Decca Records heard these demos and signed him on the spot.
  • The spirit of Jack’s hometown of Liverpool runs through the album and is reflected in songs from the Beatles, traditional folk tune Leaving Liverpool, and Anfield hymn You'll Never Walk Alone.

  • Members of the Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral choir appear on the album.

  • Beethoven's fifth symphony is the first piece of Classical music Jack remembers hearing.

  • The spirit of JS Bach is celebrated in Jack's take on Jesu Joy Of Man's Desiring, in which his vocal is contrasted against a characterful Baroque-style solo oboe.

  • Just after finishing his album, Jack flew to South Africa as the youngest ever Ambassador for Save the Children. There, he visited Save the Children projects and met local children. He joined with a children's choir to record Tomorrow, which is being used by Save the Children for their Christmas television advertising campaign, and will also be included on Jack’s album.
